Just came across this one. You were definitely shafted with that score

I can just say that I've seen the signs but I know why some people didn't. You captured strong, blinding light so damn good that it makes me want to look away or cover my eyes. That response alone, makes this a very successful image. At the same time you mastered the contrast in the foreground. Fantastic job!

Agh, so sorry this didn't do better. Beautiful winter scene - sorry that the majority seem to have passed by so quickly they didn't see the signs. They're probably the ones that would be driving too fast and would skid off the road :)

That's the first time I've seen camouflaged road signs :) Great powerful image, with subtle DMC and thus a score to match.

Are you having a laugh or are you visual impaired?

There are 6 chevron signs (big black signs with arrows) on the curve!!!!!

My favorite in the bunch; there's a lot of drama here.
Took me awhile to see the signs so hopefully others aren't quickly voting through.
